Even though The Simpsons retained the title of longest running sitcom this year, the wildly popular animated series has never produced an hour-long show. That’s about to change in a huge way, as the show is gearing up for its first 60-minute special with a hip-hop homage to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel The Great Gatsby.

The show’s take, dubbed “The Great Phatsby,” will serve as a hip-hop homage to the iconic novel and will feature an all-star cast. Of the many guest appearances, fans can expect to hear the voices of Snoop Dogg, RZA, Common, Taraji P. Henson, and Keegan Michael Peele in the episode.

Although the episode won’t air until January of 2017, here’s what Snoop, RZA, and Common look like as characters from The Simpsons
